 Frequently Asked Questions

What is a lip or tongue tie?

A lip or tongue tie is a common condition that occurs when the thin piece of tissue called the frenulum, which connects the lip to the gum or the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is unusually tight or restricts normal movement. In babies with lip ties, the frenulum attaches closer to the tip of the upper lip, while in tongue ties, it may extend further toward the tip of the tongue, affecting its mobility.

How do you evaluate whether or not my child has a tongue or lip tie?

During the evaluation, we carefully observe your child's feeding patterns and oral function, taking into consideration any symptoms they may be experiencing. We will discuss with you any challenges you may have noticed during breastfeeding or other oral activities. Our team will also examine the positioning of the frenulum, assessing whether it is restricting normal movement of the lip or tongue. We use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to ensure accuracy and precision in our evaluation.

What is the recovery and aftercare like for frenectomies?

The recovery after frenectomies is generally quick and straightforward. We provide comprehensive aftercare instructions, including guidance from our network of specialists, to ensure a smooth healing process and improve the breastfeeding experience for both you and your child.
